The LeftWords Festival of Books and Ideas encourages you to come out and support progressive Canadian writers and thinkers. Pick up a variety of books and magazines from Canadian publishers and sellers while taking in presentations from guest speakers Stephanie Ross, Brian Palmer, May Friedman, Wayne Roberts, and many more.
As the cold weather rolls in, thoughts often turn to those less fortunate. Hoping to reduce the number of Torontonians who don’t have proper winter attire, country music artist Elyse Saunders has organized Warm Coats Warm Hearts, a benefit concert supporting Eva’s Initiatives, New Circles, and Jessie’s House. A whole lot of artists—including Donna Ferra, Arlene Paculan, Kat Leonard, KIRI, and Dane Hartsell—have signed on to donate their time and talent. Gently used coats or items of winter wear are requested in lieu of a cover charge.
